Watching Nestor tonight
Well, I underestimated Nestor. It was able to punch through the high pressure cell and make afternoon rain, after all. This rain will continue off and on for the next several hours. Clearing will start to occur from west to east during the wee hours, so that partly to mostly clear sky will be likely statewide by dawn.
Monday will be nice – perhaps the nicest day of the week. The air will be mild and we will have a mostly sunny sky. High pressure will dominate, bringing about the fair weather. Highs will reach into the 60s, perhaps upper 60s to near 70 in a few towns.
Showers Late Tuesday
Chances for rain increase later Tuesday and Tuesday night. A storm system will move north of the region, dragging a cold front through the state. These showers will be quick-moving, rain amounts will be scant. Showers will exit late Tuesday night.
The rest of the week
Behind Tuesday’s cold front, seasonable and dry weather can be anticipated for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Each day will bring about partly sunny skies with highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s.
Rain next Saturday
Rain will be likely next Saturday. A storm system will develop in the Tennessee River Valley and move northeastward straight for southern New England. Some of the long-range models suggest a Saturday arrival; others are suggesting Saturday night arrival. Either way, all models are saying there will be a rather direct it with clouds and rain. Some model output is forecasting over an inch of rain will fall Saturday.
Cooler, drier next Sunday
Nice weather will come Sunday. High pressure will build into the state from the northwest. The air with this system will be colder; highs will only reach to between 55 and 60 after lows in the 30s during the morning.
